    Kim127's Note:

    Good comfort soup. I like to make extra bacon to crumble on top. It does have a little heat to it, so if your taste buds are sensitive, cut back on the red and black peppers. Recipe comes from Southern Living.

      Our family loves this recipe! Tonight I skipped the bacon for the first time and overcooked (to the point of being nearly carmelized) the onions, carrots, celery and apple. It was unanimously the best batch yet! We have some new diet limitations so had to skip the dairy this time, but it was not missed a bit. The first two times I made it exactly as written and it was excellent that way as well.

      We make this at least once a week--and my husband requests it more often than that! We make it very thick, so it's almost more of a puree. Since we're working on healthier eating, we eliminate the bacon and replace the whipping cream with reduced fat sour cream. With a hearty multi-grain roll, this is a perfect fall lunch or dinner for us! Also, it smells SO delicious as it simmers!

      Wow, this is FANTASTIC! I roasted the Squash first at 450 for 45 minutes prior to adding to the mix, and blending. I also added some chopped green onions to the sour cream and bacon garnish. Beautiful, and oh my gosh, so flavorful! Served with some sliced crusty bread. Perfect Fall Dish!
